Therewas a wedding I did recently that I used the bag so many times that I had to write to you and tellyou all about it. It seemed like there was one thing after another, and the Mojuba bag was there tothe rescue. We needed the scissors to cut the hanging loops from the brides dress as she wasgetting ready because they were bothering her. We used all the hairspray in the bottle because theywere taking pictures before the ceremony in the city. When the bride got to the reception venue,some of the pollen from the ﬂowers fell on her dress!!! I opened my bag and grabbed your stainremover. It made a HUGE di!erence and the bride was so happy that she would not be walking downthe aisle with a stain on her dress. A few minutes later, the father of the bride lost a button on histux. Mojuba to the rescue with its sewing kit! I have used your bag at every wedding and it hasalways been such an asset.
